Author of a magnificent hat-trick against Chelsea (1-3, quarter-final first leg of the Champions League), Karim Benzema (34) is showered with praise by Real Madrid supporters, the Spanish press and observers.
His partners, too, are admiring. Vinicius, who gave him his first goal, congratulated him on Twitter. “Ladies and gentlemen… Don Karim Benzema! What party !”he posted, imitated by Luka Modric, Ballon d’Or France Soccer 2008. “What a player Karim Benzema!”, dropped the Croatian. Unanimity.
